Dear Friends,


“It is good people who make good places.” 
-Anna Sewell


My return to Des Moines was especially heart-warming, given the single digit temperatures that greeted my daughter Becky and me upon arrival. Good friends and Moss Society members, Mike and Sandy Bauer, greeted us at the airport. The much anticipated dinner with the Central Iowa Chapter of the P. Buckley Moss Society was held Saturday evening at the home of Chapter President Sharon Cubit and her husband Dave.  I was delighted to be reunited with them and we shared a superb meal that made me forget about the cold.


Members of the Central Iowa Chapter gathered in the Cubit’s living room for a photo
. Ella Kerwood was unable to attend because of a broken knee cap. My wish for Ella is to have a complete and speedy healing!


The focus of my journey to Iowa was the annual fundraising print release that I do for Iowa Public Television (IPTV). This year’s print, titled Summer on the Iowa Prairie, has already raised $35,000 for the station. IPTV is a statewide public television station that has been in operation since the late 60’s. It has provided valuable alternative commercial-free programming that is educational and entertaining. Over the years I have gotten to know the hard working people behind the scenes that energize IPTV and I am grateful to be a part of the team. This print is available through IPTV and here is a link to help you find it.

Prior to the televised print release, supporters of IPTV who preordered their print, came to a special signing event

What an incredible work ethic this young woman has! She has volunteered at the station for some time now and I was so happy to see her again


I am always intrigued by the behind the scene processes of television program production.

I’ve been steadily working on a piece for the First Presbyterian Church in Ashland, KY. Collector Ann Wiseman contacted me 2 years ago with the suggestion to celebrate her church’s 200th anniversary with a painting of mine. This church was founded in 1819, and the building was constructed in 1858.  It is listed on the National Historic Registry. The print will be released at the church in June of this year. I plan to be there for the print release and am looking forward to reconnecting with my Kentucky friends and collectors. A few years have passed since I have been there.

Speaking of anniversaries, the P.E.O. Sisterhood is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. This organization is headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa and its mission is to educate and inspire women to achieve their highest aspirations. I have created a print for them that is only available through their website, Below is the print.


My print
, Seven Sisters, celebrates the 7 students from Iowa Wesleyan College of Mount Pleasant, Iowa who founded the P.E.O. in 1869.


Until next week,
